The Guinness Book of World Records has recently added another unlikely tour de force. A Xinjiang man is claiming to make the world's thinnest noodles.
Thinner than a human hair if just one kilo of flour was made into a single extra long noodle, it would stretch over two-thousand kilometers. After winning official recognition by the London-based Guinness World Records Li Enhai demonstrated his noodle mastery in Urumqi. It took less than two minutes. Then to convince spectators, he threads 39 strands through the head of a needle.
Li is famed as "The Noodle King" in China. And this latest stunt has been a full 26 years in preparation.
